The West Australian Symphony Orchestra brings Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back to life on the big screen with Academy Award Winner John Williams’ epic score played live.
WASO Conductor, Benjamin Northey, told Around The Sound, “I think this is the best of all the Star Wars movies, and has the best music. It’s a huge play for the orchestra and tests everybody. The difficulty is what makes it so rewarding.”
The second in the classic trilogy of Star Wars movies, episode V in the overall chronology, this is must-see cinema where the score is one of the stars of the show and a difficult time for the Resistance, too.
As Imperial Forces launch an all-out attack on the Rebel Alliance, Han Solo (Harrison Ford) and Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher) flee to Cloud City where they are captured by Darth Vader. Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) journeys to the mysterious, marshy planet of Dagobah, where the wise Jedi Master Yoda teaches the young hero the ways of the Force.
Little does Luke know that all his Jedi training will be called upon so soon. A stunning revelation – and a seeming life-or-death duel with Darth Vader await.
Whether you’ve seen it a hundred times before, or you’re yet to see this cinema classic, you must experience this sensation for all the senses. Playing for two nights only, 6 and 7 September.
